Full description of the book "Antonin Nechodoma, Architect, 1877-1928 : Prairie School in the Caribbean":

In the tropical islands of the Caribbean, far from America's heartland, an improbable number of homes in the Prairie Style of architecture dot the landscape. This book brings to light the life and work of the shadowy architect of these remarkable buildings. Although facts about Antonin Nechodoma are sketchy, strange rumors and small bits of information about his work circulated among architectural historians for decades. What is known is that he grew up in Chicago, where he worked as a contractor for six years, and perhaps served an apprenticeship as a craftsman and builder. Thomas Marvel follows obscure PDF leads about Nechodoma's life from Chicago to Florida and eventually to Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, where he settled in 1905. He unravels complications in Nechodoma's personal life and sorts out the influences that shaped his designs, describing with care and thoroughness the career of the person who introduced modern architecture to the Caribbean. Nechodoma's relationship to Frank Lloyd Wright, whom he never met, emerges from this search as a troubling issue. Marvel reveals that Nechodoma freely used Wright's Wasmuth Folio as a source for some of his best-known residences, sometimes tracing a perspective or changing only minor ePub details in designs that he unabashedly sent to magazine publishers as his own. Acknowledging that this practice taints one's regard for Nechodoma's originality, Marvel writes that "he can be faulted for emulation, but he can also be praised for producing great houses of his own from the great houses of Wright." Marvel credits Nechodoma with adapting the architecture of Wright's Prairie School to the tropics, creating a regional style that fuses design, climate,comfort, and natural materials that can be seen today in modest bungalows throughout Puerto Rico. Nechodoma's later work combined ornamentation and architecture in PDF the manner of Louis Sullivan and includes magnificent residences that explode with colorful mosaic tiles and art glass
